Dungeon Crawl Classics collection update

0  comments

A Dungeon Crawl Classics collection update for a couple of adventure modules I picked up at Spiel 2014.

Collection Update Dungeon Crawl Classics Goodman GamesDungeon Crawl Classics #1 – Idylls of the Rat King

Idylls of the Rat King was awarded an Honorable Mention for Best Adventure in the 2003 Gen Con ENnie Awards. In Idylls of hte Rat King, goblin bandits are once again attacking the silver caravans, killing innocent miners and stealing cargo. The goblins have taken up residence in an abandoned mine northwest of Silverton. someone must get rid of them. but this is no ordinary abandoned mine. It was deliberately barriceded generations ago when the Gannu family, founders of Silverton, discovered an unspeakable evil on its lowest levels. and these are no ordinary goblins, for the curse of the Gannu family courses through their veins…

The copy I picked up is a third printing, recognizable by its Jim Holloway cover artwork.

Dungeon Crawl Classics #2 – The Lost Vault of Tsathzar Rho

A simple expedition to get rid of a marauding ogre soon becomes more than it seems. a mysterious force has transformed the ogre and the kobold tribe he once bullied into twisted, demented creatures. When the characters enter the ogre’s cave, they find a passage behind leading deep into the mountains. Soon they arrive at the lost vault of the sorcerer Tsathzar Rho, where they are confronted with the terrifying dangers of a lost epoch!

There’s a forum post by Joseph Goodman on the Goodman Games forums that mentions three printings of this adventure module with the second and third printing both having Jim Holloway cover artwork but having a different text color on the cover. I picked up a reference towards a fourth printing I believe on the Acaeum but I can’t verify it at the moment so I will assume three printings for now, which means the copy I picked up at Spiel is a 2nd print. I will highlight the differences between the two printings below:

Dungeon Crawl Classics #16 – Curse of the Emerald Cobra

Centuries ago, a seemingly immortal yuan-ti warrior known as the Emerald Cobra ruled over the vast Eztenqui Jungles with an iron fist. Finally, a wizard managed to end the evil serpent’s reign of terror by trapping its life essence in a magical staff. The staff became both the figurative and literal heart of Voltigeur, resting in an enchanted case in the center of the town as a symbol of victory. But now the magic staff has vanished. Since the disappearance, merchant caravans travelling to Voltigeur have been savagely attacked. The few survivors report that their attackers were serpent-men swearing fealty to the reborn Emerald Cobra! Legends speak of an old pyramid near Mount Icpitl that was once the Emerald Cobra’s palace. Can the heroes locate this ancient ruin and destry the reborn Emerald Cobra?

This copy still bears the old Goodman Games lasso logo so I’m going to assume it’s a first printing. I’m currently unaware of further printings of this adventure module.
